Reba & Blake Co-Host Oklahoma Tornado Relief Concert
The two Oklahoma natives will host a benefit concert for Oklahoma tornado relief efforts on May 26 at the Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma. Proceeds will benefit storm victims in Atoka County.
Reba was born just 30 miles away from the greatest devastation of the storm, while Blake currently lives in Tishomingo, less than 50 miles from the Atoka County border.
"A lot of people lost a great deal in this disaster and it's particularly close to us because we both consider Oklahoma our home," said Reba. "We wanted to do something and let the people in Oklahoma know that we love them and we're praying for them during this difficult tragedy."
Blake goes on to say, "Oklahoma defines who I am, and seeing the effects this disaster has had on my neighbors, I knew I had to do something. Reba and I have a lot of love for this state, and we wanted to do what we can to help. This place is my home, and these people are family to us."
The storm caused approximately $500,000 in damage and destroyed many homes, businesses and schools.
